Authorized by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reaouthorization Act of 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") developed MIPS to reward clinicians for the value of care they provide rather than the volume of care, quality over quantity. The MIPS final score determines a provider's Medicare Part B payment adjustments. MIPS also created a means for consumers to rank providers.

MIPS scores are calculated using four performance categories, quality, cost, improvement activities, and promotion of interoperability. Higher scores are better. The highest final MIPS score is 100.

Final MIPS Score 99.8
Final MIPS Score without CPB 94.5
